Less is More #335 - Colours of your country's flag


Whipped up a card for Less is More #335, using a pre-loved SU stamp set I bought recently. I kept to red, white and blue for UK's flag colours:
I used:

- 4.25" x 5.5" white card blank

- snippet of white card onto which I stamped the crazy looking chicken and sentiment (from SU's 'Hey, Chick' stamp set) using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- then coloured the image using red and blue Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, adding a touch of grey so the chick didn't appear to be levitating :)

- die cut the image panel using a Lil-inkers 'Stitched Rectangle' die

- mounted the image panel onto trimmed snippets of red and blue card before gluing it onto the card front

Done! I do love this stamp set - it makes me smile everytime I see a card made using it. 😍

We've been away for a break in Germany, visiting the little ones and their Mama.  I did my best to keep commenting on the Playground - but some of my comments may have seemed quite brief. Am much happier using a laptop when typing out more than a sentence or two! Normal service will now resume.

  6. That "hair"! It reminds me of the heyday of the punk craze in the 1970s. Hilarious!
    Hope you had a lovely time in Germany and lots of grandkiddy cuddles.
